2000 Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG 5.5L from Australia and New Zealand
Best car I've owned so far
Air flow sensor.
One of the best cars I have owned. Always gives me a smile when I drive it. So much torque and effortless acceleration. I would only sell it to upgrade to a C63.
The only downside is owning one in NZ, you get ripped off on the parts and servicing; expect to pay $1000 for the minor things.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Use independent mechanics. The prices of parts of many German cars brand-new, original, are actually on par, sometimes cheaper than the same part bought brand-new, original, for many late-model Japanese cars.

The prices on some parts are cheaper, but the key word is some. Having owned 2 Mercedes, I can assure you parts and labor are high on these cars. Getting my air alone fixed on one was 5k. To me at the time it was image. Now I would rather have more trouble free driving, freed from draining my bank account with new Fords. Note I didn't say Honda or Toyota.
